Four more years

In college, I used to look forward to Tuesdays because it was Onion Day. Not much has changed. (I especially can appreciate this one here.) Today is the fourth anniversary of the day I moved to Chicago. My first (tiny!) apartment. My first time living fully on my own. My first time living in a state other than Ohio. Four years later, this place is starting to grow on me. In two years, I'll probably be somewhere else. Such is life.

This week's theme:
It's time for Animaniacs!

Every once in a while, I break out into this song.

It's time for another episode of "Good Idea, Bad Idea"
(I've always wondered... is that the same guy as the Motel 6 Commercials?)

On to the news:

Domestic foreign intelligence
(Proud to be an American... most of the time... just not right now.)

Government intelligence
(Maybe because it never happened?)

Criminal intelligence
(They actually stole the kitchen sink?)

Non-human... intelligence?
(Let me here you say this story is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!)

Bright, shiny objects:

Mike the headless chicken dot org
(Need I say any more?)

Yogi, the Ranger isn't gonna like this...
(Does the bear look a little... drugged to anyone else?)

And now a word from our sponsors:

Can't get to sleep?
(Hasn't about half of FIF-land had this problem at some point in the past?)

Today's Fun Fact:

The characters Bert and Ernie on Sesame Street were named after Bert the cop and Ernie the taxi driver in Frank Capra’s “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
(But... were they or weren't they?)

And finally:

A gratuitious reference to my wife, since apparently I'm not allowed to go through a post without referencing her.

if you like that animanics song you must know the Monty Python one that is similar from the Meaning of Life. it's even better.
